It doesn't use the same code-base, so I must assume for now it doesn't
have the same problem. Enough people have been using it in the early
development days to kick up a big fuss if it did.

It has been a while since I had to know about these things though.

Half borders are painful to look at, if they can be specified that way in
the first place. You don't *need* the border for resizability BTW, but you
do need a visual clue there is a border there to grab and move. A
contracting frame background could help there.
